I finished two of the three Putz houses I have been working on for Valentine’s Day. They are posted in my Etsy shop. ChristmasNotebook.etsy.com
A vintage Valentine postcard is featured on the bottom of the base. A little surprise when the house is tipped up.
Tiny pink beads line the sidewalk.
The second house is similar, but has a cute heart-shaped fence around the yard.
It also has a sweet vintage postcard on the bottom of the base.
Tiny hearts line the sidewalk.
I punched little hearts, painted and glittered them, and used them to embellish the houses.
It took me a while to figure out how to make the base to use the vintage postcards without doing any damage to them. I ended up making a window in the base and encasing the postcards behind a piece of acetate.
I plan to finish the third house tomorrow and will post a picture when it’s finished.
